    The black shoes looks great in the picture but I'm not sure if the colour is the sensible choice. Please help.

    Not sensible, why?
    Because they look like they might be a few degrees hotter in the summer? Or because people might mistake you for a Baltimore Orioles bullpen attendant?

    Wear whichever tennis shoes you want, as long as they fit well and feel great when you play.

    I wear black and gray Babolats about half the time. They are great shoes. They have yellow on them. It does not match one single thing I own. No big. They're tennis shoes. I'd get them in smurf blue if that's all they made.

    I've got the barricade 4's in white and i picked up some tirrand 2's in black. I love the black, it's a different look. Tennis is supposed to be fun, so go with what you like.

    If they are close in color to the dark blue or grey A3 shoes, they age very well, stay cleaner than all white shoes, especially on clay. Also are cooler than all-leather shoes. Still not sure why anyone feel they are comfortable?

    The sensible choice would be to go with white. It goes with all outfits and is accepted at all clubs. But you don't have to be sensible.:) Just go with what you like.

    Probably the most sensible statement I have ever read on this board.

    I prefer black shoes...but that orange trim does make them look like Baltimore Orioles shoes. Personally I like black/silver. And no, I'm not a Raiders fan. Just like black and silver or black and gray.

    I liked those black/red shoes Sampras wore for a little bit. I'd get those if were available.

    its a shoe designed for tennis... so it probably won't mark up the courts.
